Twomey's Evolution - New Release Schedule
POSTED 4/4/2012 10:55:43 PM
In 1999, we harvested our first vintage of Twomey Merlot from our Soda Canyon Ranch Vineyard. We knew from the beginning that Twomey was about discovery, evolution and finding the best fruit in all of California. As we’ve sought out new varieties and new vineyards across California, we’ve discovered something about ourselves - we have evolved. Thirteen years later, our spirit of innovation drives us to handcraft wine according to: Appellation, Single Vineyard and Estate wines.
Our Appellation Pinot Noirs boast extraordinary complexity as we have blended selections from some of the finest vineyards in California. The 2010 growing season, although unusually cool throughout the state, was particularly exciting for our appellation Pinot Noirs. “I was delighted to see that our careful planning and attention to detail in the vineyards yielded fruit of freshness and exquisite balance,” said Twomey Winemaker Ben Cane. “The wines are complex and structured, perfectly expressing the appellations they were derived from.”
Our Sauvignon Blanc has always been an Estate wine; in fact we are now growing Sauvignon Blanc on three of our Winery Estates. The 2011 Estate Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of our Calistoga Vineyard surrounding our Napa Valley winery and our Westside Road Vineyard in Russian River Valley. The Napa fruit offers us a deft balance of citrus and mineral elements, which is complemented beautifully by the guava and tropical notes emanating from our Russian River fruit.
As the next step in our evolution, beginning this year, our Appellation and Estate wines will release in the spring while our Single Vineyard wines will release in the fall. As our release schedule changes, so does the availability of certain wines. With this in mind, fans of Twomey will be excited to learn of the launch of our new Twomey Wine Club this summer, which will offer some of our selections exclusively to our Members. Keep your eyes out for new details and your opportunity to be the first to join, coming soon!
We look forward to discovering and sharing these new wines with you and growing our Twomey portfolio.
